After gaining her art degree, Jean was in a quandry as to what to do next, so she applied to the Digswell Art Trust for a fellowship (The Digswell Arts Trust is a charity that for over fifty years has focused on artists in the early phase of their careers). To her surprise she was accepted, and it was here that she had the space and encouragement to experiment and she developed her own style of painting.
Jean says: "Up to this point, selling my paintings had not occurred to me. A chance meeting on a train, with an editor of an art magazine who was interested in my life story led to an article in that magazine which was seen by a major art publishing company. The rest, as they say, is history!"
